Kingston SSDNow V+200 (120GB) Upgrade Kit

 

The Kingston SSDNow V+200 kit provides a no-nonsense—and almost too no-frills—way to upgrade your spinning drives to SSD speed.

Good write performance. Included accessory kit is a full-featured upgrade solution. Affordable.

Inconsistent read performance. Utilizes last-generation transfer technologies.

Kingston SSDNow KC380

Units OK - Order was odd!!!

 

Now this SSD size 1.8" is a good price so I am keeping the second SSD 120GB drive from this i7 hp laptop for a added on backup.

Both units test A-OK.

Well that above word "both" is indeed odd when you only order ONE!!!

Monster in a jar

 

Great solution for operating system and for heavy load software such as Adobe Suite Collection.

Amazingly fast and reliable. After installing all the necessary software, drivers, updates, games, etc... my Win 7 Ultimate still loads in 10-12 seconds from start

Review of SSD

 

I really liked this product and have purchased a total of 10 units.

Price is right. Speed is nice

This is a SSD for a business laptop and some users have a decent amount of data that the 120 GB limits, but for most of my users this 120 GB is perfect
